OCTOBER 2. 1894
EIGHTY YEARS AGO.
Recently we came across a volume
written by Ross Cor, entitled "Adven
tures on the Columbia River including
The Narrative of a Residence of Six
Years on the Western Side of the Rocky
Mountains, Among Various Tribes of
Indians . Hitherto Unknown." The
work was written by Mr. Ross Cox and
published by J. & J. Harper of New
York in 1832. Mr. Cox was one of those
who came to Astoria on the second ship
sent out by Mr. A 8 tor, the Beaver, which
arrived at the mouth of the Columbia
May 9th, 1812. Mr. Cox made the
journey to the Spokane and Cceur
d'Alene country the same year, and
during the six years of his 6tay in the
country made eight similar trips. His
description of the Columbia is remarka
bly correct with possibly one notable ex
ception, and that is concerning the
ramds at the Cascades. Indeed his des
cription is so true that wf can hardly be
lieve he was mistaken in this respect;
and yet we do, not remember of Lewis &
Clarke or any other of those who have
written of the Columbia making mention
of it. He says :
"The upper part of this chain of rapids
is a perpendicular fall of nearly sixteen
feet ; after which it continues down
nearly one uninterrupted rapid for three
miles and a half. The river here is com
pressed by the bold shore on each side
to two hundred yards or less in breadth
The channel is crowded with large rocks
over which the water rushes with in
credible velocity and with a dreadful
noise. - Above the portage the river
widens to about half a mile, and is
etudded for some distance with several
rocky and partially wooded islands. We
encamped about five miles from the
portage, on a pretty little creek on the
What strikes us as peculiar in his des
cription is the statement that "the
upper part of this chain of rapids is a
perpendicular fall of nearly sixteen
. feet." There is no such fall there now,
nor has there been within the memory
of the oldest inhabitant. If it ever was
there, either the rimrock that caused it
has worn away, or the channel below
has become filled with bowlders. That
the change has been made is possible,
though so marked an alteration does
not seem probable. The islands he
speaks of as dotting the river above the
portage are some of them gone, and the
others going. The one where Lewis
camped is now but a dot of rock and
and, with a few willows growing on it,
certainly not large enough to suggest a
camping spot. The question is, was
there a perpendicular fall as described?
The pretty little creek he speaks of is, no
doubt, Rock creek, and the site of Mr.
Cox's camp is probably, also the site of
the present town of Stevenson, the
county seat of Skamania county.
JUDGE JENKINS REVERSED.
The famous strike order of Judge Jen
kins made at Chicago last summer has
been considered before the United States
court of appeals, and has been modified.
Jenkins, it will be remembered, decided
that "a strike was necessarily illegal."
Judge Harlan, of the supreme court,
handled Jenkins' ruling very roughly.
He held there was such a thing as a
legal strike and that the employes had a
right to quit work individually or in a
body regardless of the inconvenience it
might cause the employers. That part
of Jenkins ruling that they had no right
to conspire to do damage or to embarass
was sustained. So it seems after all
that Judge Jenkins was not able to give
to a corporation rights superior to those
of the citizen, or to surround it with an
odor of sanctity. Aa between corpora
tions and their employes, the rule is
held to be the same as between indi
viduals and their employes. This is a
plain comlnon sense rule, and one that
will prove satisfactory to all except per
haps the corporations. The ruling of
Judge Jenkins, if carried to its legitimate
conclusions, would mean the enslaving
of labor, for if a man went to work for a
company and could not quit when he
wanted to or without the consent of the
company he would be virtually a slave.
And again, as a natural corollary, if the
men could not quit when they desired
the company could . not discharge them
until they - were ready to go. Judge
Jenkins' intellect was evidently on a
strike when he rendered that decision.
MAKE 'EM SET.
The Sinslaw hatchery was completed
this summer, and everything prepared
for the hatching of salmon. There was
only one reason why the hatchery was
not a success, and that was that there
were no chinooks. It seems the govern
ment officers in charge of the work re
fuse to hatch any but chinooks, turning
a deaf ear and a cold shoulder to the
silversides which are now running. Mr.
McGoire, the state fish and game pro
tector, through whose efforts the hatch
ery was established, says there are
plenty of chinooks, but that the fireher
men caught them all before tbey got up
as far as the hatchery. Others, however,
claim that the institution is too near
tide water, and that consequently no
eggs can be procured. Whatever may
be the trouble, those in .charge are pre
pared to leave, and during the win
ter ' the place will ; be deserted.
If we were . in charge of ' that
business we would set the officials on
one hatching of silverside eggs anyway,-)
if they never hatched one. Uncle Sam's
employes insist on drawing their salar
ies, and they would be doing as little
harm while incubating a hatching . of
silverside eggs as anywhere. Most of
them are good setters anyhow, and the
maternal instinct ought to be cultivated
The secretary of war has ordered a
board of engineers to meet at Portland
about the middle of the month to change
the, plans of the locks so as to accommo
date boats at a higher stage of water
than was originally intended. The
people up this way would like to see the
canal completed under the present
plans, for boats can pass the locks when
so completed, at any time they can get
up to them.

The severe pain of a burn or scald
promptly relieved and the sore healed in
much less time than when medicine has
to be sent for. A sprain may be
promptly treated before inflamation sets
in, which insures a cure in about one-

Cuts and bruises should receive im
mediate treatment before the parts be
come swollen, which can only be done
when Pain Balm is kept at hand. A
sore throat may be cured before it be

be removed by applying it twice a day
for a week or two. A lame back may be

saved or a pain in the side or chest re

Ayer s Sarsaparilla does what no

do. It searches out all impurities in the

The Best Medicine.
J. O. Wilson, Contractor and
Builder, Sulphur Springs, Texas,
thus speaks of Ayer's Fills:
" Ayer's Pills are the best medicine I
ever tried ; and, in my judgment, no
better general remedy could be devised.
I bare used them In my family and
recommended them to my friends and
employes for more than twenty years.
To my certain knowledge, many cases
of the following complaints have been
by the use of Ayer'a Pills alone: Third
day chills, dumb ague, bilious fever,
sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys
pepsia, constipation, and bard colds: I
know that a moderate use of Ayer's
Pills, continued for a fewdays or weeks,
as the nature of the complaint required,
would be found an absolute cure for the
disorders I have named above."
" I have been selling medicine for
eiulit, years, and I can safely say that
Ayer's Pills give better satisfaction
than any other Pill I ever sold." J. J.
